It's hard to believe that August is already drawing to a close. It's week 4 in our August Acceleration series, the penultimate week, so we're bringing you something a little special and inviting you to share in our summer lunch with some special guests. We invited Rohan Weerasinghe PhD, Kate Cook and Jools Enticknap to join Melissa Smith and Meleni Aldridge for a summer lunch to 'feast with purpose', where we could share good food, lovingly made, along with engaging conversation liberally laced with personal wisdom and experience.

Over the past 3 weeks, our offerings in this series have acknowledged and embraced the fact that crisis and challenge offers us unique opportunities to expand our consciousness, evolve and grow as humans. It's through this growth, and acceptance of what is, that we once again have the opportunity to thrive and move through life with more ease and grace. This week, we bring together three hugely self-motivated, energetic, successful and positive human beings — all good friends of ANH-Intl, all professionals in their own fields and who we knew would make significant contributions in terms of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual nuggets of wisdom. We weren't disappointed.

Each one of us needs to chart a course that works for us individually to help us navigate what lies ahead. In the short to medium term, it's likely to get tougher before we start to see and feel an easing of restriction. So it's imperative we have information, tools and strategies to draw on when the going gets tough. Empowered and sovereign, we are much more likely to better surf the tsunami of change without getting dumped on the beach.

Please join us for lunch...

And now to food...

If you're a long time ANH supporter, you may have noticed that we love food and we love to cook. Food is all about nurture as much as it is about nourish. It's essential life-giving fuel for our bodies, but because it informs the way our genes express, it has a major impact on our health and wellness. But food also impacts our spiritual consciousness too through it's prana or life force, through the types of food you eat, their effect on your body (and mind), and the quality and provenance of those foods. We started our entire August Acceleration series with an article on fasting, because so much healing takes place on so many levels in the absence of food too. 

The menu for our summer lunch draws inspiration from our Food4Health guidelines. The dishes on the menu are all gluten and dairy-free, naturally keto-adapted, minimally processed, full of wholefoods that include a diverse range of 'rainbow' plant-based ingredients and loaded with healthy fats. There's enough choice to suit a range of tastes and choices, including for vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians and omnivores and we hope you enjoy making them as much as we did. (Meleni and Melissa made all the food as well as co-hosted our lunch.) We've also included a few of the recipes you'll find in our new book, RESET EATING, due out on 28th January 2022 in hard copy as well as eBook.

>>> The beautiful array of water kefir drinks on the table were from local producers, Nordic Wellness Drinks, based over the hill from us in Cranleigh, Surrey, where you can also tour the Surrey Hills fermentary.
